If that seat is a plastic one with plastic bumpers on the ends, I have one; but
I just looked and I can’t find it! I think I have too much unicycle stuff. Maybe
I should invite all of you over and have a sale . . . .
Anyway, I think you have dislodged the part that keeps the unicycle right side
up when it wants to be laying on it’s side all the time.
Otherwise, it may be one of the bolts that holds the bumpers on. If not, maybe
someone at the factory wanted to play the “Princess an the Pea” test on you?
